Yoga retreat essentials

We have had a crazy past few months of work so when my Aunt Joanne suggested we take a weekend off to go on a yoga retreat to Kripalu, we couldn’t jump on board faster. Kripalu is a center for wellness and health up in Western Massachusettes that organizes all different weekend and week-long retreats. None of us have ever been to Kripalu before but we’ve heard great things from friends who have visited. The schedule of yoga twice a day, meditation, massage, a bowl of homemade oatmeal for breakfast and NO cell phones (!!) sounds like exactly what we need to do mini recharge. So, what’s going to be in our weekend bag later today? A couple of pairs of our favorite yoga pants, tortoiseshell sunnies and of course an ode to Persian rugs via our new yoga mats. Here’s what we’ll be bringing with us in our Baggu weekend bags (seriously the best bags for a two or three day trip):

clockwise from top
sandals | hat | bathing suit | sunglasses | yoga mat | sneakers | bag

Have you ever been on a yoga retreat? We’re really looking forward to this time away to just relax and enjoy each other’s company. Have a great weekend! Namaste!
